    Gun-cleaning kit prompts evacuation at Baylor

    By MIKE GLENN


    Officials at the Baylor College of Medicine ordered an evacuation of the campus today after a gun-cleaning kit and an empty box of shells were discovered in a classroom.

    An assistant professor was about to teach a class about 1:30 p.m. when she spotted a paper bag on a side table containing the cleaning kit and the empty box.

    "There was oil on it (the cleaning kit) so obviously it had been used," said Dr. Peter Traber, president of the medical school.

    Campus security officers were notified about the discovery. Within the hour, the alert was announced over Baylor's public address system as automatic e-mail and voice mail messages were relayed to students and staffers, officials said.

    "We sent them home and told them the campus would be closed until the (Wednesday) morning," Traber said.

    Minutes after the public address warning was sounded, a man told security officers that the items belonged to him and were left over from a weekend sporting trip.

    "We were able to question him and search the appropriate areas," Traber said.

    At no time was there ever a gun on the campus, officials said.

    Baylor College officials declined to identify the person who left the items in the classroom but said he is not facing any disciplinary measures.

    In light of violent incidents like the mass shooting at Virginia Tech, Traber said it was only prudent to order the campus-wide evacuation that affected thousands of students and staffers.

    "In today's world we've unfortunately had a very good example of where this type of thing can lead," Traber said. "The safety of our employees, students and faculty is the number one issue."

    what a novel form of protest.

    I wonder what they'd have done if he'd been part of 'empty holster week'?

    I might have to stop visiting WMD or checking order status in the library. You think they'll evacuate campus if I actually purchase a gun online while in the library? :x:

    Damn, I can't remember where I read this, but someone looked over a guy's shoulder as he browsed a gun messageboard, i think it was calguns. Someone reported him, the cops came and searched him and detained him.

    The thought police are right around the corner.

    people need to KNOW their rights and they need to grow the sack to EXERCISE them.

    A cop asked to search my vehicle... I asked to see their warrant (I got pulled over for speeding, I knew they didn't have one). He tried to give me a hard time, I asked to leave, he said no because he was gonna cite me, I told him to get his sergent down here if there's going to be an issue, otherwise, he needs to give me my license back. I was promptly allowed to leave and given a "warning".

    KNOW YOUR RIGHTS.
